Walked through the self guided Bumble Bee Cannery Museum on my way back to our hotel after lunch at The Coffee Girl. I enjoy museums as a rule, however, this one needs some tender loving care. Perhaps the exhibits could be curated by a college intern majoring in history? The equipment and items displayed did not have much in the... More

This is a very small but informative self-tour through the old cannery. Actually, outside the museum are some old fishing boats and other memorabilia from the fishing days. The museum is free of charge (at least it was for us early in the morning) and there is a short video and a few other interesting bits of history.

This museum has a ton of information packed into a small space. It is interesting to try to visualize the old canning operations. It's located at pier 39. Look for the Rogue Brewing sign and then go to right of the brewery. The museum is free and doesn't take long to visit.

This is a small museum at the end of the pier. Worth a walk as it tells a very interesting history of the company. Plus it's free! The restrooms are a little...er...rustic. It is at the end of the trolley line. Not much else there unless you want to walk up to the Goonires house.

You can understand about the shaping of Astoria It is at the end of the trolley line, so a great place to explore between trolley rides. There is... More

We visited the Goonies House location and the kids asked for another Geocache search and they programmed one into their phones... More

The Cannery Museum and old cannery factory are both worthy of seeing. A private citizen assembled the museum and though it is small, it sits in the old cannery and it is a neat building. There was a lot in the museum to read if you take the time to do it. The Coffee Girl Cafe located on the premises... More

We stumbled upon the museum while trying to spot sea lions. It is quite a cool little place. Lots of really neat history. Stop by if you get a chance when you're in Astoria
